Fighting Cancer with Data: Delivering the insights researchers need, when they need it

A leading cancer research institute partnered with Clutch, a division of ICC, to aggregate five different tissue bank networks into a single, national portal.

Curing a complex disease requires complex data, so researchers needed a better way to understand tissue samples. These number in the millions, and scientists were still faxing requests to multiple tissue banks for bio specimen samples. Then they’d wait – and wait some more.

The ICC team integrated disconnected sample data for real-time accessibility, and kept the researchers’ UX firmly in mind. With aggregated tissue data on tap, ICC developed a concierge service so researchers can ask questions to help identify the right samples for crucial studies. Our partner’s researchers can now focus on cancer without interruption.
